Cuyo Malbec

Alamos

Mendoza Malbec 2019

Color of purple, nice legs. Nose of strength of alcohol, vanilla, tobacco leaves, strawberry jam, and more powerful spicy alcohol. Taste of good acidity, spice, sweet grapes, vanilla, zest, peppery, and a bit minty. Aftertaste of some hints of soft tannins and mineral, and some more ripe grapes. On par. — 9 days ago

Organic Mendoza Malbec 2019

Very enjoyable,
Great value, makes you realize not to take wine so seriously. It's just about having a couple glasses and chilling out at the end of the day.

I agree! If we have learned nothing from the past 17 months its to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. 🍷

Familia Zuccardi

Concreto Mendoza Malbec 2019

A great Malbec! Red berries, new oak, white pepper, and barnyard on the nose. Spices and red currant on the palate Sturdy bodied with high alc and round drying tannins. Medium minus acidity.

UPDATE: Reportedly, this is aged entirely in concrete! Thus, my oak nose note is off.

Trivento

Golden Reserve Luján de Cuyo Malbec 2018

Intense red colour with violet tints. The aromatic profile expresses the sharpness of red fruits such as raspberries and blackberries. Full-bodied. Delicious with cheese, berries, charcuterie meats and of course chocolate. — 6 days ago

Cheval des Andes

Mendoza Malbec Blend 2014

Lovely wine. This is deep ruby with loads of wet forest floor initially and after aeration it develops deep red fruit and oak scents. The mouthfeel is impressive, very round. Raspberry, vanilla, slight spices and soft tannings. Great vintage here. Cheers. — 7 days ago

Altar Uco

Edad Moderna Malbec 2018

A lean Malbec, no baby fat or even juicy mid palate, closer in style to Northern Rhone. Black fruits and minerals. Really interesting. Skurnik importer — 18 days ago

High Altitude Vines Selección Mendoza Malbec 2017

As with the 2015 vintage the 2017 opened May 2021 is superb. Let it breathe 20-40min or decant. Aroma smooth with black cherry and dark chocolate with tad of coffee. Very low tannins and incredibly smooth with black cherry standing out. Will keep in my storage cooler and serve with excellent steak cooked below medium rare. No question of quality and will see what longer storage does!!! — 14 days ago

Adrianna Vineyard Lote 3 Malbec 2017

Dusty earth and pipe tobacco. Hints of dark currant reminded us this was actually a fruit extract . Fully integrated soft tannins made it a wonderful experience. — 10 days ago
